by Edward di Lorenzo
1999 Cast

Commander Koenig and Sandra Benes are injured when their Eagle crashes on the surface of the Moon. While Doctor Russell attempts keep them alive using life-support to sustain them, Koenig apparently awakes from his coma to find himself in a city of light on the planet Zenno. Here he meets an alien scientist named Raan, who wishes to study him as he believes Koenig to be the missing link in the evolution of his people. Koenig finds himself falling in love with Raan's beautiful daughter Vana, and that the thought of a peaceful, immortal existence on Zenno is more appealing than the daily life or death struggle faced with life on the Moon. However, back on Alpha, Koenig's body is dying and without his leadership, the moonbase is falling apart…
